Top 11 Villains Who Became Heroes

This is a mash-up of some my favorite villains who became heroes. Now, I am not talking about how they were wishy-washy as a villain or were gray and slowly became a hero. I am talking about villains who needed a real redemption story and rose up to become a champion of what is right.…

TOP 25 FAVORITE AVENGERS

I’m making this list minus the big three (Captain America, Iron Man, and Thor) simply because they would dominate the top spots. These are the other Avengers who are heroes in their own right.  25.

25. Chamber- Originally a member of Generation X, he was always an outsider even we got promoted to the X-Men. He was combined with Jonah Hex when Marvel and DC did their Amalgam series where the heroes were merged. 24. Longshot– He’s not a mutant, but he’s been a member of the X-Men. He joined…

TV Series Review- Young Justice

After the hilarious, but often too funny for its own good sidekick stories from Teen Titans, DCNation on Cartoon Network brought Young Justice. It had an all-star cast and superhero line-up. Season 1 told the story of how Robin (Batman’s sidekick), Kid Flash (Flash’s sidekick), and Aqualad (Aquaman’s sidekick, but a totally new awesome take…

Movie Review- The Host

Brought to you by the mind of Stephenie Meyer, author the ultimate expression of an abusive relationship: Twilight series, comes another story that, to my surprise, I did not hate. The Host is directed by Andrew Niccol (Lord of War, In Time). I admit, at first, I was hesitant to see The Host, but a few of my friends…

Book Review- Ender’s Game

There’s probably not I can say about this particular novel that hasn’t already been said. Orson Scott Card wrote a short story entitled The Battle Room, from that came the great science fiction edit that spawned: Ender’s Game. I recently read it knowing that a major motion picture was coming out sometime this year, so…

Movie Review- Rise of the Guardians

DreamWorks brings us Rise Of The Guardians. The Easter holiday was fast approaching.

TOP TEN BEST ANIMATED SERIES COMIC BOOK ADAPTIONS

10. X-Men: Evolution- Meant to show the X-Men when they’re younger, the first seasons showed the plight of the mutant students as they struggle to maintain their secrecy while the later seasons focused on them living in a human’s world. The show did a great job transitioning out of the high school angst into the…

Movie Review- Wreck-It-Ralph

Wreck-It-Ralph is Disney’s latest adventure into CGI animation directed by Rich Moore, and I have to say that I did enjoy this film. The story goes that Ralph (John C.

Movie Review- Dredd

If you’re the kind of guy who likes tons of gunfire and explosions, doesn’t mind gore, and likes kick butt chicks, than Dredd is the movie for you. Dredd stars Karl Urban as the titular 2000 AD Comic Book cop. I did not see the original Judge Dredd film with Silvester Stallone so I cannot…
